“We need to have one giant garage sale and invite the world.”

Joel Stein has an entertaining column in the LA Times today about how stupid our stuff is going to look to the next generation. He includes stainless steel, Dasani and Brooklyn on the list of dumb stuff, saying of the latter:

Williamsburg, Brooklyn: Paying $3,000 a month to live near Manhattan? Exactly as near as the Sweathogs lived? You can wear librarian glasses, play in a band and go to readings in Iowa City too. Either way, you’re not in New York.

While this may be true, I don’t think Iowa City residents are trying to pass the town off for something other than it is. Except for those New York transplants at the Writers’ Workshop, maybe. 🙂
